HARRISBURG — A police sweep of suspects with outstanding arrest warrants led to the apprehension of a Highspire man accused of inappropriately touching two juvenile girls in 2017, according to Harrisburg Police.

Lonnie Joe Clark, 57, allegedly touched the girls in his truck on Dec. 21, 2017, police say. The girls told their mother, who immediately contacted police.
